PG Tips is selling an actual chocolate teapot for Easter this year

Not useful but definitely delicious

Published

PG Tips

We’ve all heard the phrase ‘as useful as a chocolate teapot’ used to describe something that is, well, not useful in the slightest.

This year PG Tips has decided to launch its very own chocolate teapot, which, while it won’t function efficiently as something to contain tea, does look delicious.

The popular tea company is selling the limited edition chocolate teapot in time for Easter, marking its first foray into the world of confectionery.

We all love a brew round here, and we also love a bit of chocolate, so what better way to combine the two into the ultimate Mancunian gift?

PG Tips

PG Tips said: “With over 80 million Easter eggs sold in the UK each year, PG Tips has launched the new product to give Brits a to-tea-lly new way to enjoy the annual celebration, avoiding the egg-ja-vu that comes from receiving the same old egg-shaped chocolate each year.”

According to research from PG Tips, nearly half the nation enjoys seven brews a day – although in Manchester those are amateur numbers.

The chocolate teapot is made from the finest artisanal milk chocolate, and comes in a biodegradable branded box, accompanied by 40 PG Tips tea bags to keep you going while you tuck in.

Charlotte Ridley, Senior Brand Manager at PG tips, added: “We know that Britain is a nation of tea-lovers and we wanted to give them something to get excited about this Easter.

“Our new chocolate teapot is the perfect alternative for those suffering with Easter egg fatigue-because Easter eggs aren’t all they’re cracked up to be!”

If you want to get your hands on one of the teapots, they are currently available to pre-order on the PG tips website – they’ll set you back £10.

You best be quick, as they’re likely to sell out fast!

Greggs is launching a vegan sausage, bean and cheese melt

Who fancies trying one of these?

Greggs

Greggs has announced it’s adding yet another vegan alternative to its ever-expanding plant-based menu.

This time the popular bakery chain is veganising what in my humble opinion is the greatest pasty of all time – the sausage, bean and cheese melt.

Greggs confirmed the news on special media today, announcing that the vegan option would be hitting heated shelves next month.

The company wrote on Twitter: “The Vegan Sausage, Bean, and CheeZe Melt is coming. WARNING, it’s a bit of a mouthful.”

The accompanying video read: “First we gave you the vegan sausage roll. Then the vegan steak bake. And now, another legend has been veganed”.

Greggs say the new vegan alternative is fulfilling and tasty, with the same ‘sausagey’ and ‘beany’ flavours as the OG, meat-filled option.

It’s made using plant-based ingredients instead of meat, and cheeze – a dairy substitute which is flavoured like cheddar and mozzarella.

Hannah Squirrell, Greggs’ customer director, said: “The latest addition to our menu gives customers another vegan friendly alternative to one of our most iconic menu items.

“As we expand our vegan options with the launch of our new Vegan Sausage, Bean and CheeZe Melt, we mark another milestone as we continue with our journey to become our customers’ favourite destination for food-on-the-go.”

The new offering is hitting stores on August 5th and will set you back £1.60.
